Ocotea quixos, LAURACEAE
Others names: Ishpinku (kichwa), anís ahwa (castellano-kichwa), canela, canelo, canelón, flor de canela (castellano), canela de la amazonía, flor de la canela.
It is one of the native spices of the Andean countries. It was one of the products of exchange between the tropical lands and the highlands, coming to be used as currency (Estrella, 1997). We do not know the uses that they gave to this spice in pre-Columbian times. In his expedition of 1539 by the Pastaza River, Diaz de Pineda called the territory "Country of the Cinnamon" after observing an abundance of trees similar to the Asian "cinnamon". It should be noted that Asian cinnamon, with a stronger flavor, is one of the main reasons why Europeans set off on their voyages of discovery: they wanted to find a route that would allow them direct access to this and other valuable spices from Southeast Asia . The ishpingo did not replace cinnamon in the world market, but it has had a safe place in the national gastronomy.
It has various medicinal properties:
- stomach upset and diarrhea.
- In Manabí they use it to treat arthritis and cramps
- anti-platelet and vaso-relaxant effects
- powerful antibacterial and anti-fungal activities
- Generally can potentially help with health issues such as high blood pressure, inflammation, insulin problems and energy.
- Helps strengthen the body's energy
- It can be taken as a social and relaxing drink
HOW TO USE:
Generally it used like a tea with 1-2 spoon. Also it can be used with 1 spoon of honey. In the morning or in the afternoon. Often used by indigenous with Balsamo Rosado (ishpingo in the morning and balsamo rosado in late afternoon)
